MANDURAH has turned into a haven for gluttons and fans of Man v. Food culture and is now home to a raft of food challenges and oddities.
DPM Cafe on Mandurah Terrace recently introduced its mega donut. Inspired by the TV show, the ten-layered doughnut is filled with cream and nutella.
Meanwhile, Mumma’s Eats N Sweets on Mandurah Terrace and Cups and Cones in the Ocean Marina are both doing their versions of the Freak Shake. It’s a milk shake layered with cakes, cookies and candy.
Surfside Bakery in Singleton also has a donut challenge – a two-and-a-half foot long jam donut filled with cream and custard. Finish it in half an hour and win $200.
For something a bit fishy – The Oyster Bar still has its oyster challenge. The current record holder is Leo Otene, who finished four dozen oysters in a minute and another six dozen in 1m 48sec.
If it’s a savoury challenge you’re after, The Shack Burger Parlour at the Ocean Marina makes mega dogs and serves the colossus burger, which has double meat patties, double bacon, double cheese and a chicken patty with onion rings.
Catch 22, also in the marina, serves a strawberries and cream cocktail.
